The authors start with the basic science of communicable disease, then move on to the history of biological warfare and bioterrorism, followed by the threat of agroterrorism and current biodefense initiatives…As a review and reference for those potentially affected by bioterrorism issues, or for those interested in expanding their reference material related to bioterrorism issues, this book is both a current and worthwhile addition to a security professional’s library."--Security Management
